About Us

The short story of Synrgy is the work of Melvin Tate, MA Ed. Now retired from the Kent School District he continues his work in the community and expanded upon that work he was called to do as a career educator in the communities served by the district, including the city of Kent. The work involved responding to and helping the district and newcomers adapt as the district grew from a monocultural community to become one of the most diverse school districtís and cities in the state; the fourth largest district in the state, and the sixth largest city. As an ombudsman reporting directly to the superintendentís office, Melvin investigated hundreds of complaints and cases, defusing issues before they led to crisis or to litigation. Through Synrgy Melvin and associates provides ombudsman services for the community now. Through Synrgy he also provides workshops like Cultural Competence and Behavior Management to the community at large. Similar to the way he advised a former school superintendent and other employees, Synrgy also provides advice around diversity and equity issues. Synrgy can help create diversity and equity plans, evaluate organizations relative to diversity/equity and inclusion; help organizations and individuals adapt to change; educates continuously around diversity and equity issues in a variety of ways.
Synrgy uses an array of tools to do his work, including participation in meetings, writing letters, editorials, a website, newsletter; serves on panels; speaking engagements; supports community leaders; and more. Synrgy feels compelled to help each individual and organization reach their full potential for assuming responsibility and getting involved; and help others to understand what it takes to effectively navigate in a world with a myriad of diversity: this, not only for the benefit of themselves as individuals, their group or organization, but just as importantly for the common good of all.
